From a bottle that is likely 3 years old. Brown-amber, a puffy off white foam. Aroma is dark pit fruits, caramel, toffee, some alcohol spicing, definitely a bit old. Taste is similar, cherry, fig, caramel, toffee, probably held this one too long. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009

Some hop aroma. Golden amber coloured and bitter with some alcohol present. Crisp and slighty dry wheat finish. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
On tap at the brewpub 6/8/08: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a well-lacing white head. Estery caramely Belgian yeasty nose has a touch of light fruity notes. Body starts fairly full and biscuity malty sweet with some Belgian yeasty complexity and light fruity flavors before a semi-sweet peppery clove finish. hopdog (12575) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2009
750ml bottle. Walking up from the ’cellar’ I decided to open this on the porch since I don’t fully trust some corked bottles. I’m sure glad I did. This let out a huge pop followed by a long stream of beer. This one also kept creeping out of the bottle and was almost impossible to pour. Took a long time, but settled into a deeper and hazy amber color. Aromas of yeast, breadiness, earthy, and toasted caramel. Tastes of yeast, some fruitiness, caramel, and lighter earthiness. bhops (433) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2009

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Picture sent in to be uploaded... Pours with a huge, creamy off-white head and a hazy brown body. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, fruit, light funk, citrus and honey. Taste is fizzy, a bit sour with dark fruits and a bit of metal. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2008
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Dark amber colored pour with a big creamy white head. Nose is spicy Belgian yeast, brown sugar, and alcohol. Taste is a mouthcoating combination of tart cherries, metal, and some other unknown fruit that lingers.
